In short: Good flat course for PBs and can choose between 5 & 10K In full: Did say part of the course was off road, should have been the other way round!
Organisation was good, apart from when the two races split into two and the front runners of the 5K ended up going the wrong way. Once the marshalls corrected the mistake, these guys had probably added 40 secs with the extra distance they ran.
But a really good mix of runners and facilities were great on site. Date of review: September 12, 2005
In short: Decent race, but some km markers seemed a bit off In full: Good flattish course, well marshalled. Route means you pass HQ just after the start and just before the finish, so support is good. Interesting having separate ladies' and mens races - parents seemed to appreciate it (also the fun run). I entered on the day so didn't benefit from a race pack and had trouble finding Morley village hall as it's not in Morley village! A sign or two from there would have been nice. Really not sure about km 1 (long) and 3 (short) - hope the full distance is right!! Date of review: September 12, 2005
In short: in agony!!!!! In full: did it in 52.10, never ran on sand or dunes before and it absolutely killed me!!! went off quite quickly needless to say i slowed down once the dunes had taken their toll, superb training though doing liverpool on oct 9th hoping for a pb there, had no chance on the course today but really enjoyed it very well organised.

In short: 3 laps at start, i am sure that could be lost in and around the course. Tee or medal rather than cider would be nice. Good fun and pretty fast. Thanks Axe Valley Date of review: September 12, 2005
In short: Definetely different with the three laps of the town at the start. In full: I must admit I really enjoyed the three laps of the front to begin with, nice and flat with the crowd cheering. Only major downside was the sharp downhill right turn at 6 and 11.5 miles, otherwise a very nice course and well organised, at £7 quid entry excellent value. Date of review: September 11, 2005
In short: overall a good race In full: this was my first 10k in some years it was a good race for a beginner only one hil at the begining so you still have fresh legs, but what happened to the 9k marker???? maybe i missed it but i don't think so as i was lookin hard for it so i could push that bit harder, overall a good race in which i got a PB Date of review: September 11, 2005
